Felting dates back to the neolithic period and has been used for centuries in textile making, but it wasn't until the 1980's and 90's that we see needle felting becoming an artistic process. In this class, we will discuss the history and science of needle felting to better understand the craft, and create both 2D and 3D art from natural wool.
Note: There is no class on 2/19.
